2013 Resolutions & Goal Update

Happy New Year!
So now, new year's resolutions....?
Well, I will make some less quantitative, more virtue oriented guidelines instead of adding to the goals from last year. I'm keeping the 101 list going and update occasionally. I did mark some off in 2012. There may be some that just don't happen by 2014, and other I'll replace.

Break molds & Don't let the past define me
I will accomplish my goals and dreams because I can
Put school first priority of my day
Meal plan
Be me and be happy about it
Find joy in simplicity
Realize all is a gift; all is in God's plan
Play it forward in helping and giving to others
Spend less
Save more
Eat less
Exercise more
Complain and worry less
Pray and trust more
Stop worrying about what others think
Don't judge others
Don't criticise others
Think of what would make Jesus happy
Ask the Holy Spirit for guidance
Be more grateful
Get organized
Throw out more junk and don't allow any in
Reach out to friends more
Make time for prayer, exercise and reading
Help kids find activities they love
Finish projects before starting another


Corporal Works of Mercy
Feed the hungry
Give drink to the thirsty
Clothe the naked
Shelter the homeless
Visit the sick
Visit the imprisoned
Bury the dead

The Spiritual Works of Mercy
Admonish the sinner
Instruct the ignorant
Counsel the doubtful
Comfort the sorrowful
Bear wrongs patiently
Forgive all injuries
Pray for the living and the dead
